At Swinton Fitzwilliam, pupils in Year 3 to Year 6 will learn French. Our main feeder school currently rotate cohorts between French and Spanish and this means our children can continue on their learning journey to become articulate and fluent French speakers.
To support teaching and learning we are trialling the use of the materials and videos from the National Oak Academy this year https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-key-stage/key-stage-2/subjects/french
The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
- speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
- can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
- discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
